Hilarious Tweets On Breastfeeding Mishaps: "I'm Not Breastfeeding Your Teddy Bear"
Moms have hilarious stories on breastfeeding
There's a giant pressure on mums to breastfeed their babies. The message is on billboards, magazines, radio, and social media. It is pretty much everywhere. People look at you with approval when you say you're breastfeeding exclusively. Unless you're living under a rock, you must have seen or heard “Breast is best” mantra once or twice.
Consequently, what that pressure does is to transform itself into a pang of nagging guilt in mums who, for one reason or the other, can’t breastfeed their babies entirely or for as long as they want to. It is fine if you can't breastfeed your baby. Keeping up with breastfeeding is hard.
In an interview with Health, Joan Younger Meek, MD, chair of the American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Breastfeeding, says it okay if your health won't let you breastfeed. There are other options and whichever is fine.
“Safety is first,” Meek says. “And baby being fed is important, whether that ends up being breastfeeding, breastfeeding plus some expressed milk or breastfeeding plus some formula, or [formula] only.”
Regardless, some breastfeeding moms have found a way to make light breastfeeding by tweeting about some hilarious moments.

When you're a nursing mom, every bath you take is a milk bath
- Melanie Dale
Evie: My bear is hungry.
Me: Ok, let's get bear some food.
Evie: She needs your milk.
Me: I'm not breastfeeding your teddy bear
Though these women make light of the situation, it doesn't mean that the bites, scratches, and slaps weren't painful at the time. Neither does it mean that feeding a baby multiple times every day didn't take its toll. It's hard but most mums would tell you that it is a rewarding experience. And for mums who couldn't breastfeed for health or any other reasons, it takes nothing away from you. You are great mums.
